    Hi lads;
    Do either of you know what's going on and how to fix the following problem?
    My 2003 CV8 Monaro remote keys sometimes unlock and sometimes do not unlock the doors. Now both spare and usual keys do not start engine. The engine ignites, tries to idle then conks out. Can you help?

    Maybe both key fobs are flat and not disarming the car, when that fob touchers that slipring it tells the bcm to send earth to your fuel pump relay.

    I was told by a Holden service department, "that the car should still start if the battery in the remote key is flat." The fob toucher seems to work ok. Once it touches the slipring, it will unlock doors and boot, yet still engine will not hold idle.

    Thanks for your time lads! Much appreciated you all replying. It looks like the car will be going to the auto electricians after all.
